God has being merciful to us all despite our sins and evil ways but still yet we choose to be evil, have we humans ever ask ourselves that if the world ends now where are we heading to?Have you ever thought about the eternal suffering after this life on earth. Please let our good on earth be more than the bad things we do. That everlasting life God promised us is not here on earth but in heaven.”
